RESOLUTION

    Recognizing the systematic abductions of Japanese citizens by North Korea.

    Whereas the United States of America recognizes that North Korea was abducting Japanese citizens since the 1970s;

    Whereas the Universal Declaration of Human Rights upholds the basic principles of liberty and freedom enshrined within the United States Constitution and Bill of Rights;

    Whereas human rights awareness is essential to the realization of fundamental freedoms and contributes to promoting equality, preventing conflict and human rights violations, and enhancing participation in democratic processes;

    Whereas these abductions of Japanese citizens by North Korea directly conflict with the basic principle of liberty and freedom; and

    Whereas there have been several attempts at dialogue between North Korea and Japanese leaders in an effort to yield stable results: Now, therefore, be it

Resolved, That the House of Representatives—

(1) calls on the Government of North Korea to release any abducted foreign nationals, including, but not limited to, those from Japan;

(2) urges the Government of North Korea to return the remains and provide information on any deceased abductees;

(3) urges the Government of North Korea to make such reparations as are appropriate regarding abductees; and

(4) urges the Government of North Korea to apologize and permanently cease such activities.
